ActiveFor people who enjoy walking as much as two miles a day, perhaps to explore historic neighborhoods or a nature trail.
Moderately ChallengingFor hardy explorers who enjoy a good physical challenge, spending most of their days on the go.
ChallengingGet ready to keep up with our highest-energy group. These demanding, and rewarding, programs are for seasoned outdoor enthusiasts.
Get in touch with your inner artist as you spend a relaxing and rejuvenating week in the heart of Missouri’s Ozarks. Under the tutelage of professional art instructors, learn the basic techniques of watercoloring, including brush strokes, texturing and blending. Then, try your hand at painting a portrait, a landscape and a still life painting. Take in the surrounding natural beauty of the nearby lake and woods as you begin to create a sketch book journal and learn the beauty of writing memoirs. At the end of the week, showcase your work for your fellow artists to enjoy.


• Spend an afternoon at the St. Louis Art Museum and join a docent for a comprehensive look at its art collection.
• Create two watercolor paintings, including a landscape of beautiful Sunnen Lake and its shoreline.
• Relax during free time activities such as mini golf, nature hikes, archery, boat rides and more.
